Critique my Mustang!

Can anyone please give me a critique of my 17 year old mustang gelding? If you can give us some weaknesses AND strengths that would be ideal.
I've spent the past 5 months trying to get him into shape and I think he's turned into a pretty fine horse. :)
The pictures aren't the best, because he was more focused on eating than squaring up.
In the first picture he is on uneven ground, but it was the best picture I could get

I like him. Good bone (don't you just love those mustangs and how hardy they are?), nice legs from what I can tell, nice short cannons in the front, well porportioned with good LS joint placement. I can't really say anything about his head/neck though because he's eating ;)

He also looks like he MIGHT be butt high to me, but it looks like he's on a downhill slope in that first picture?

Overall a very solid, very cute all-arounder type horse! Whats his name?

Here's my go at it
Pasterns are nice and short, cannons are a good length, he has good bone, his back legs are sickle-hocked. I'm not quite good enough to hazard more with these pictures... lol. I was thinking the same thing- he may be downhill a bit, but he's on uneven ground, so I'm guessing that he's level to very slightly downhill?
Overall I agree with Endiku, he's a very solid, sturdy boy. Love him! :)

:) thank you!
His name is Arrow.
he's made me fall in love with mustangs!
They're so hardy and easy to keep healthy, and they are so versatile and spirited. :)

If you had said "critique my QH" , I'd a believed you. Very nice looking horse.

He was sold to me as a Quarter Horse x Morgan, but I did research on his brands and it turned out he's a mustang from
The Navajo nations.
I thought he was a QH until I found out otherwise!
Thank you :)

He is built almost exactly like my qh/arab cross. Sturdy bone, a little chunky, shorter hip but still good, excellent hock angle, great pasterns, strong topline, powerful shoulders. Honestly if he was a sooty palomino I would think you stole my horse! So of course I love him!

Haha I promise that I didn't steal your horse and dye it so you wouldn't be onto me :o haha

And thank you
